Day at Florida Beach Gave Teen Hookworms in His Feet

A day of fun at the beach turned into a nightmare for one teen. Michael Dumas, 17, was buried in the sand by his buddies. He didn’t know it at the time, but lurking in the sand were tiny parasites known as hookworms. They bit into Michael’s foot and crawled beneath his skin. As the hookworms made a home there, Michael developed painful sores that became infected. The hookworms most likely came from an infected dog.

  2. I looked at my feet when they said when dogs poop and it causes hook worms because I stepped in dog poop and walked on sand barefoot.
